Protest Songs No.1: Are We Alive?

(Martin Colyer/Mark Pringle)

We’re taking out the rich – and their acolytes,
It’s the end of the road, and the start of the fight.
Revolution’s in the air, and the time is right,
Why the wait? Let’s go tonight!

In their basement pools and their panic rooms,
They watch the fray, sat on heirlooms…
But are the troops amassed, or scattered blithe?
Did we hesitate, or are we alive?

Are we alive?
Are we alive?
Are we alive?

  1. Martin,

    Good to hear that people are still moved to write protest songs. Given the times we live in, this is much needed now.

    I’ve been working on a project about skiffle and was wondering if you could drop me a line?

    thanks

    Billy
